Our seminars are different. We provide you with practical, whole school and individual behaviour management strategies that link positive psychology with emotional education to enable schools to create consistent, predictable, nurturing and high expectation cultures.

These strategies and skills can be applied to all students – special education, mainstream, primary and secondary.

Adults can personally benefit too!

We make a positive difference to the lives of children, their parents and teachers.

It will be held during the first week in October, which coincides with the Australian school holidays. Bookings will be taken very soon, once costings are finalised.

Take your career to the next level with a week of professional learning and five-star pampering at the luxurious Park Hyatt, Siem Reap, Cambodia. It’s not often that teachers get to enjoy the lifestyle perks of the corporate world. You’ll expand your horizons, learn from the best and kick back with some high quality pampering and the downtime you deserve. As well as insights into positive behaviour management from industry experts, your training package includes accommodation, most meals, airport transfers, drinks, massages, school and cultural visits. Partners / friends can even share your room for free. For most delegates the price will be fully tax-deductible (but please check with your accountant first).  More details?


We are in high demand throughout Australia as providers of exceptional training for teachers regarding the preventing and managing of challenging behaviours in the school environment. Book us to speak at your next staff development day, conference or staff meeting.

“Ian’s “Positive Behaviour Management” presentations are fast-paced, witty, practical and exactly what the teaching profession needs… Teachers leave Ian’s presentations empowered, energised and affirmed. His presentation style is guaranteed to entertain, inform and inspire.”   Joy Craig. Principal. Warwick State HS, QLD


Many schools find supportive, constructive, sensitive feedback from an ‘outsider’ an enormous help. Ian can observe, support and mentor both beginning and experienced teachers and school executive; review, evaluate and report on your school’s behaviour management / welfare systems; or devise strategies to support individual students with challenging behaviours.

“Dear Ian. Your positive impact on our setting has been nothing short of transformational. Your expert knowledge, coupled with extensive experience, built the capacity of our staff and was tailored to our unique, challenging context. ​Thank you!”   Karen Brown. Principal. Coniston PS, NSW
